Defiant Joe Dunne is “absolutely confident” he can revive Colchester United’s ailing season.
And the U’s boss has challenged his struggling side to be “coupon-busters” at in-form Bournemouth tomorrow.
The U’s are rated by some bookmakers at 6/1 to win this weekend.
Nevertheless, Dunne believes his U’s side are capable of upsetting the odds.
He said: “Bournemouth must be rubbing their hands about tomorrow, looking at the form table.
“But it could be a coupon buster this weekend because no-one will have us down to win, that’s for sure.
“They’ll be a big X next to Bournemouth on the coupon but we’ve got to go there and upset a few people."
